Evaluating the production and export figures of Oyak Renault for 2020, Oyak Renault General Manager Dr. Antoine Aoun said: “We demonstrated a successful production performance in 2020, which started under the influence of the pandemic and was a challenging year for the automotive industry as in all sectors. We continued our production in accordance with the instructions of local and national health authorities by ensuring the health of our employees at the focus of all our activities at Oyak Renault Automobile Factories.
It seems that the automotive industry will continue to work under pandemic conditions for a while. In 2021, companies that attach importance to employee health and best adapt to difficult production conditions will come to the fore. At this point, the agile and flexible production capability we have gained with 50 years of knowledge is the biggest strength of our factory. This invaluable feature enables us to manage the pandemic period in the most effective way.
As Oyak Renault Automobile Factories, we opened a brand new page in engine production in line with Groupe Renault's technological transformation strategy. Last year, we started mass production of engines for hybrid vehicles in our factories. We are the first factory which produces engines for hybrid vehicles in the Renault Group and Turkey.
As one of the most important production centers of Groupe Renault in the world, we will continue to maintain our success with our human power and technology.
